I was originally going to call this post 'Dusty Warriors', but the late Richard Holmes had already bagged it. On Sunday afternoon I set about doing more tidying up of some of the figures rescued from JR's attic last month. With the aid of a 2-inch paintbrush the worst of the dust (see the photo in my previous post) has now been removed from these chaps - to reveal some really rather nice paintwork. Can anyone help with identifying the manufacturer?
My plan is to base up the painted figures and (in the fullness of time...) paint some more in order to get some use out of these rather splendid figures. I have noticed that these older 25mm metal figures are fairly compatible with many of the newer plastics - and Martin has many of the latter which we have used in Strategos / Lost Battles games.
Clearly I was drawn to the sheer ridiculousness of what WRG used to call 'Extra-Heavy Camelry' - what better place to start?
